28 TC Membership Categories and Membership Numbers Issues May 2010

29 29 Issues on the Table There are a few related issues relative to TC membership that have been raised over the past few months. In general, the issues fall into two areas: 1.Overall size of the TCs in terms of membership. 2.TC membership categories. Recognized categories: »Associate »International Ad hoc categories: »Emeritus Members

30 30 Issues on the Table TC size really brought to a head by GNC: Total membership of 80 per their annual report. Emeritus status members was already being investigated by Basils group (Nancy Andersen action). No definition of Emeritus category. No rules relative to term length or number of Emeritus members. What is the impact on AIAA and conference settings? Cost of dinners. Size of meeting rooms.

31 31 TC Membership Totals Is there a general problem, or just a couple TCs that are really pushing the envelop? 2009 membership statistics from Betty for 70 TCs. Data includes number of Members, Associate members and International members. No Emeritus member data.

32 32 Membership Statistics Data from 70 TCs: MembersAssociateInternationalTotal Sum Average TC TCs with over 35 Members: 15 TCs with over 45 Members: 1 TCs with under 30 Members: TCs have International members. Average of 5 International Members for these TCs. 34 TCs have Associate members. Average of 4 Associate Members for these TCs

33 33 Membership Statistics GNC is the leader for Members (50), Associate (17) and Total Membership (80) and near the top for International (13). Two other TCs have 40 or more Members: Space Transportation (41) Thermophysics (40) Five TCs have a Total membership of 50 or more: GNC (80) Electric Propulsion (55) Adaptive Structures (52) Fluid Dynamics (51) Propellants & Combustion (51)

34 34 Membership Statistics

35 35 Membership Statistics

36 36 Proposal to address issues: Develop guidelines for TC membership (in addition to the 35 Member limit). Work with the offending TC and those on the verge to get their membership numbers in order. General training for all TCs on new guidelines. Actions to address TC membership totals

37 37 Establish a Total Membership limit of 50 per TC. This will include all categories (Members, Associate, International and Emeritus…and anything else). However, keep the 35 Member limit in place. This gives each TC at least 15 additional membership slots for the other categories. Otherwise, a TC could just load up on Members and not go after Associate or International members. Membership Guidelines - Proposal

38 38 Used by several TCs, some formally, while others are more informal. Some examples of uses for Emeritus members: Recent past chair (mentoring of new officers, etc.). Awards nomination board. Conference support. Guidelines for Member Emeritus: Most have a specific purpose (defined goals and objectives). Should have a defined term (not member for life). Not intended to keep folks around just for the sake of keeping them around; we want turnover on the TCs and production from the membership. –Document processes, rather than rely on Yoda. Member Emeritus

39 39 Leave details up to the discretion of each TC. However, TC must define roles and responsibilities for Emeritus members. Must also have a defined term (1 to 3 years, say). Proposal to be reviewed by Deputy Directors and approved by group Director. Emeritus Member Guidelines Return to Agenda

40 Back-up Charts

41 41 Membership Statistics

42 42 Term limits for International members? (match Members). May impact ability for International members to attend a conference (TC membership provides impetus for funding). Term limits for Associate members? (probably not needed). Other points to consider/address…. Return to Agenda

44 Comparison of AIAA and ASME Fellows Process (DRAFT) Jim Keenan Deputy Director, Flight Sciences Aerospace Sciences Group

45 45 Background ASG approached about differences between AIAA and ASME Fellows process Determine the following: limitation on the number of members allowed for promotion to Fellow breakdown of Fellows per year (PhD, MS, BS, Other) current requirements/qualifications for becoming Fellows of each organization

46 Points of Contact 46 Carol Stewart, MBA Manager, Honors and Awards AIAA 1801 Alexander Bell Drive, Suite 500, Reston, VA (phone) (fax) Leila Persaud Manager, Honors and Fellows ASME Three Park Avenue New York, NY Tel: (212) Fax: (212) Cathy Mervyn Coordinator, Honors & Fellows ASME Three Park Avenue New York, NY

47 Limitation on number of Fellows AIAA Requires Fellows to be Associate Fellows prior which takes minimum of 12 years bylaw wording is one Fellow for every 1000 voting members may be elected annually. ASME 10 years of active practice and ASME membership No set limit on number of members who can be promoted to Fellow 47

48 Summary of Fellow Information 48 AIAAASME Total Membership~30,000~127,000 Required years before applying for Fellow 12 years required to become Associate Fellow 10 years ASME membership 10 years active practice Required rank prior to becoming a Fellow Associate FellowN/A % of members who can be promoted 0.1%N/A Maximum number per year based on membership 30No upper limit Number of Fellows by year * * * * * * * * * *77 *assumed based on total membership Over the last 11 years, the number of ASME Fellows has ranged from 75 (0.06%) to 140 (0.11%). The average number of Fellows from that time span is 112 per year which is approximately 0.088% of the total ASME membership. AIAA is set at 0.1% of total voting members.

49 Breakdown of Fellows by degree & year AIAA is unable to break down its Fellows by degree ASME does track the number of Fellows and degrees doctorate degrees (PhD or ScD) range from 73% to 90% over the last 11 years 49

50 Current requirements/qualifications AIAA: individuals of distinction in aeronautics or astronautics who have made notable valuable contributions to the aerospace arts, sciences, or technologies. ASME: have been responsible for significant engineering achievements. appears to have a broader scope through the use of Qualification Categories (back-up material) includes members outside of technical research who focus on engineering including education, professional leadership, codes & standards, and engineer/statesmen. 50

51 Current requirements/qualifications Examination of AIAA peer review evaluations form Quality of endorsements is redundant based on the other evaluation criteria Weakness in the AIAA evaluation process for service to the profession (elected officials can receive more points than long serving individuals) service to profession double-dips by recognizing publishing papers which is also accounted in the Technical evaluation Management is only considered important by the AIAA if the manager is a program manager or a full professor. Equates full profess to a program manager. 51

52 Conclusions AIAA and ASME have similar basic requirements for Fellow Similar percentages of members who become Fellow Slight difference in length of time required to nominate Major shortcomings for AIAA No explicit emphasis is placed on leadership or innovation in education, standards development, or statesmanship Apparent requirement/reliance on networking to achieve Fellow status (election/quality of endorsements) Bias of AIAA toward research, academic positions, elections, and open publications limits the pool of possible Fellows 52

53 Recommendations AIAA should: 1.Develop a Qualification Category to aid nominations and evaluations 2.Eliminate overlap between topic areas (technical vs. service to the profession) 3.Clarify broad terms (e.g. Program Manager, Well Known for Cost Effective Management) 4.Eliminate or reduce the reliance on quality of endorsements 5.Determine other metrics for service to the profession 53 Return to Agenda
